Whipped cream from non-dairy milk?

Has anyone tried making a whipped cream from almond milk? I'd found a few recipes but wanted to know if anyone had actually tried it. Specifically I'm looking to find a cream substitute to use for scones :)

I've never tried it, but I imagine you'll need to add a fat to the almond milk to make it work.

It just occurred to me that silken tofu might help.

Haven't had any luck with almond milk. . . I have used coconut milk (http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-whipped-cream-from-152490) with good success.

That sounds great! I'll try that one!

Third suggestion: make it from nuts (soaked cashews?) rather than from the milk of nuts.

Just don't try hemp milk for whipped cream...tis gross.

Simply Vegan has a simple recipe for making whipped cream, but specifies you should use soymilk. Basically, you emulsify the soymilk with a little oil in a blender, then sweeten it with maple syrup. I've done it many times, and it's fairly foolproof, although the recipe cautions that you shouldn't try it on damp, humid days.

I agree with the idea of using cashew cream, however.

This is the method I usually use. You can't go wrong with coconut cream! http://ohsheglows.com/2012/08/30/coconut-whipped-cream-a-step-by-step-photo-tutorial/
